Going across the back, measure from shoulder end to shoulder end. Talk to the client and make sure he is happy with the placement of your fingers. Some customers prefer a drop shoulder.

SLEEVE

* All measurements must be made in inches

The sleeve length starts from the centre back of the neck. Always measure sleeve directly after yoke, keeping your finger at preferred shoulder point (e.g. 20"). Slide tape measure without moving your finger to half of yoke measurement (e.g. 10").

This will allow you to find the exact centre of his back. From this point start measuring the sleeve length running the tape around the back of the elbow and down to the wrist, to desired length. Don't be afraid to ask the customer where he prefers his sleeves to finish. Round measurement to nearest 1/4". Do not add any ease or shrinkage allowance. We will do this at our end.
